If it is leaking at the gasket, remove and replace the gasket.
If it is leaking at a corner from a rust spot, you may be able to repair it if the hole is small with Puddy Epoxy, that sets in 5 minutes and cures in 1 hour or so.

I tried this on a 1998 Ford Taurus that had a difficult to remove oil pan that seemed to drip oil when shut off.

I got a screwdriver and poked a larger hole in the oil pan and made the edges go ragged around the hole.

Then, I sprayed it with brake cleaner to get the oil residue off.
Then, I got a golf ball sized amount of Puddy Epoxy, mixed it by kneeding it in my two hands, then I applied it to the hole. It works great, going on 2 years.

A lot cheaper than a new pan removed and replaced, by the way.

Good luck on this repair.

I just got value cover replaced the next day its coming from bottom


i assume you're talking about oil leak,right? and i really hate to assume,but this time i will. you may have a leaking oil pressure sending unit. if it's coming from under the engine,and the valve cover gasket has been replaced recently, if you have'nt hit anything with the car that may have caused damage to your engine,I would look for a bad oil sending unit leaking,or a leaking oil filter,or a leaking oil pan gasket. or a simple oil drain bolt loose. if this does'nt help you,please repost your question to fixya.com

My 1992 isuzu trooper is leaking oil .it appears to be coming from top passenger corner of oil pan.however oil has coated parts to rear and above oil pan.oil leak is slow.could this be oil pump.what are...


clean your engine and look very carefully where the oil leak really come from, the cause why this leak happen, the engine was shutdown while the engine temperature is hot. usually the leak will come from the turbo. the engine must be idle for 3-5min before shutting off.

My 98 cadillac catera started spitting and pouring oil really bad and i can't find out where it is coming from


If you can't see the oil, wait for the engine to cool, with the key out of the ignition and the battery preferably disconnected for safety, feel for the oil leak. There are a great many places that oil can be coming from, but large leaks tend to start at the pan or the heads.

Leaking antifreeze from oil pan bolts


Its almost impossible to leak antifreeze from oil pan bolts. However if you have a bad head-gasket antifreeze can get into the oil and yeah with that back pressure in the oil pan it can leak. I would look at the water pump first, it is possible that the pump or the seal on the pump is leaking and it is running down the front of the engine and it looks like its coming from the oil pan. Check this vehicle care fully and make sure that it is coming from the oil pan. If it is really coming from the oil pan you would nee more than a gasket you would need a complete head job. Check and let me know, the status. Good Luck
